Tanzania Maasai Women Art

Bologna today looks exactly like the image above: grey and full of snow.
As a reaction to snow and cold, I have started to search for colorful images and handicraft jewelry on the internet.
A few days ago I have seen on a fashion magazine a beautiful reportage on masai jewelry in Africa...and I think today African jewelry is just what I need.

(the contrast between the image above and the ones below is quite impressive :)

Interesting enough - thanks to my researches - I have come to know an association called Maasai Women Art
It supports the beautiful beadwork jewellery of the women in Mkuru, Northern Tanzania and helps the local women to launch micro enterprises so that they can have an income...
I am going to get in contact with them and see what I can buy online to support the association...
